Dear Dr. Heydegger,

Under a separate cover you will be sent 3.3 grams of the Allende Meteorite powder for which you asked in your letter to Dr. B. Mason. Also, I am enclosing a copy of the procedure used in the preparation of this sample.

I hope that 3.3 grams is a sufficient amount of this sample for your work.

When the shipment is received, please date, sign and return the white copy of the invoice to the Office of the Registrar.

Sincerely,
Eugene Jarosewich
Chemist

Transcription Notes:
The name at the bottom was originally transcribed as "Jerosewich", however there is ambiguity as whether the second letter is an e or an a. A brief search indicates that the second letter of the name is 'a' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugene_Jarosewich, http://mineralsciences.si.edu/facilities/standards.htm). Given the ambiguity, I am switching it to 'a' to match multiple other sources.
